Sembler, the St. Petersburg, Florida-based company behind such local projects as the Edgewood Retail District, Perimeter Place and Canton Marketplace is threatening to abandon its TOWN Brookhaven development if it does not get $51 million in tax breaks. Located on Peachtree Road adjacent to Georgia State's Brookhaven campus and Oglethorpe University and just a few miles north of Lenox Square mall, it has a prime location but apparently Sembler does not have the funds necessary to finish it. Truth is, Sembler and DeKalb County should be thanking the residents of North Druid Hills for mobilizing against their planned TOWN Briarcliff, a development that would have been more than twice the size of TOWN Brookhaven. Had that project also begun, the county might be looking at another huge expanse of dirt and perhaps Sembler’s hand out for another $100 million or so. Unfortunately for Brookhaven residents, the damage there has been done; hundreds of trees have been cut down and the project already underway. To stop now would have as bad, if not more of a negative impact on the neighborhood, than if it had been stopped before construction began. What's your opinion on the situation? Repeat Atlanta!
